TEXT This then is the message which
we have heard of Him, and' declare unto
you. I John 1$.
The world has always been willing
to listen to a man with a real message
Since the days of
John the Baptist
been sent from
God, and has
borne witness of
the truth, the peo
ple have turned
out to hear from.
Luther in his day,
and Wesley and
their, were recog
nized as true mes
sengers of God.
William Carey brought another
great thought from heaven, and Rob
ert Raikes another. In our own land
Dwight L. Moody and Francis E. Clark
and Frances Willard have each been
the bearer of rich messages from God.
All these have met with stout opposi.
tion, for "My thoughts are not your
thoughts, saith the Lord," and yet
eventually, their message has been re
ceived, and has been incorporated in
to the life of the church.
One accent of the Holy Ghost,
The heedless world hath . never lost.
That God has messages for the
church of today no one can doubt.
Never was there an age which needed
divine wisdom more than ours. Great
problems confront us, great dangers
threaten us. Many of God's people
seem dazed by the difficulties before
them, and cry . out in pitiful tones,
"Who is sufficient for these things?"
Instead of waiting upon God for a re
newal of their strength, they resort to
all maaner of wdrldly expedients to
gain the attention of the fickle crowd.
Others recognizing clearly the same
difficulties and dangers are clamoring
loudly for "A man with a message."
Why should not every Christian be
"A man with a message?" Was it not
said of "lay, "I will pour out my
spirit upon va.i flesh; and your sons
and your daughters shall prophesy,
and your young men shall see visions
and your old men shall dream
dreams?" Was it not satd of all be
lievers, "Ye shall be witnesses unto
How to Obtain a Message.
There are grave difficulties in tho
way of even those who are busiest in
the service of God. This is an age of
hurry and worry, and unless we are
very careful we shall fall into the spir
it of the age, and allow ourselves to
be robbed of that quiet and repose
which is essential to a deep acquaint
ance writh God. Somehow we must
get time to be alone with God, time
to let the truth as It is in Jesus filter
down through our being until our
whole life is saturated with its spirit.
So shall we come forth from our
closets each day with the dew of
heaven upon our hearts, and with a
fresh message upon our lips. "lie that
hath an ear to hear, let him hear what
the spirit saith unto the churches."
Avoid the Danger.
It is a dangerous thing to know
God's will and not do it. And one of
the most perilous things a Christian
can do, is to try to hold his own sim
ply, and not go forward into the deep
things of God when thus led by the
spirit. I have read of a Christian , man
who became so engrossed in his busi
ness that he largely lost his fellow
ship with God. After a while his busi
ness began to fail; he found that in a
few weeks the vein of coal from which
he had, been drawing ., his supplies
would be exhausted, and all his invest
ment would be useless. He was also
impressed that his business troubles
were due to his departure from God,
and this led him to much prayer.
; One night in a dream a voice seemed
to say to him, "Go deeper." It seemed
to him to be the voice of God, and it
led to an entire transformation of his
life. As he entered upon a closer
walk with God his heart was filled
with new joy and power. But still thje
voice kept speaking to him so per
sistently that he began to think it had
something to do with his business.
And so one day he proposed to his
foreman that they should abandon the
old vein of coal, and sink a new shaft
with a Triewlof finding a deeper store.
The foreman ridiculed the idea for all
the indications were against it. But
he insisted and at length a shaft wvs
sunk, and after they had gone down
a reasonable disfance they struck, not
a vein of coal, but lo, an immense
vein of iron, and suddenly the bank
rupt miner found himself a million

: LESSON FOR APRIL! 21.
THE APPOINTING OF THE
LESSON TEXT 3:7-19 and Matt. 5:13-
GOLDEN TEXT "Ye did not choose
me, but I chose you, and appointed you,
that ye and bear fruit." John 15:18
(R. V.).-: v r,-: .
Things do not happen in the realm
of religion, they come to pass. No
man can alone accomplish any great
task. Every great leader has been
blessed by one or more equally, great
helpers. - Luther had his Melancthon;
Wesley had his brother Charles, Whit
field and others; Moody had Whittle,
Bliss, . Sankey and more. These lead
ers but followed "in his steps."
Jesus' ministry made him very
much observed and at the same time
greatly multiplied his duties and bur
dens. When, therefore? he chose these
disciples he desired not only to ob
tain help and to begin to teach those
who were afterward to take up his
work, but-like every other act, he de
sired to teach a' lesson to those who
were so carefully observing his life.
So it was that the significant num
ber c? twelve, corresponding to the
twelve tribes, at once confirmed his
assumption of the Messiahshjp. . This
meant that in him : those wondrous
prophecies were being fulfilled, and it
also served to stimulate those upon
whom the choice fell. . Moses whq led
this people out of Egypt had to be
helped (Ex. 18:17-24) in his work and
a . greater who is to found , a new
kingdom calls about him those who
shall do a greater work than merely
to. judge the people. Why greater?
Because they are not only to judge
results but are to change results by
altering causes. - They are to have
power over demons even as the Mas
ter, for evil has no rights. The source
of their power is to be Jesus for he
is to be "with them'1 power and pro
tection as well. So with us. (Matt.
28:20.) Their power is to grow with
usage, for we learn by doing, hence he
sends them forth..
Some Things It Teaches and Why. -
This lesson is different from our
previous one where Jesus first called
his disciples. Luke tells us that these
twelve were selected from among the
rest of the disciples. The greater
nearness and more extended author
ity of these "messengers" called upon
them greater testings than the others
who were disciples or "learners." -
Matthew tells us what Jesus said
is to be the character of his repre
sentatives. He likens them to salt
and to a light. "Nothing is better for
the whole body than salt and sun"
were the words of Pliny. Salt is a
great cleansing agency; it is a strong
tonic; it-has great preservative quali
ties; it is a great preventive against
corruption, but Jesus adds, if salt
loses its saline quality it becomes
like any other earth; it has no dis
tinguishing essential, characteristic.
Let not the Christian, who is "the salt
of the earth" lose his identity, lose
his saltness and become like the
world about him. .If he does he is fit
then only to be trodden under the
foot of man. These disciples are to be
the light of the world. It is a good
thing to preserve, to purify, to cleanse,
but it is a greater thing to energize,
to direct, to lead.
How Men Are Saved.
These apostles came from many
walks in life and represent varied tem
peraments. The aggressive Peter and
the other "son of thunder" who would
call down fire upon those who walked
not with Jesus. The reflective cau
tious Thomas, tho plotting practical
Judas, "who also betrayed' him."
These are the men who are sent forth,
some as public heralds (John 1:36)
and some by personal solicitation
(Jas..l:41) to win yet other followers.
Men. are saved through saved men
and those whom he sends forth are
those who have first learned to follow.-"Their
work Is made permanent
only as they "abide"' in him. . God
wants the hearing ear, the believing
heart and the confessing mouth
Those whom Jesus sends are to of
f er his kingdom to men not to force
it upon them. They must expect to
be received as he was received and
how that shall be he plainly foretells
(Matt. 10). Their . work shall bring
variance upon earth, yes even among
those of the same family, but the man
who refuses to go, to take up this
cross, is none of his, "is not. worthy
Jesus saw plainly that the victories
of his kingdom are often hindered
rather than helped by the presence
of great, crowds (v. 12).
Why send out Judas? Undoubtedly
he had all the desired qualifications
for leadership, and chosen as he wa3
that he "might be with him" he need
not have hardened his heart, bringing
upon himself the greater condemna
tion. Jesus had a three-fold work for
these .disciples: (1) to preach;; ,(2)
to heal; (3) to cast out demons'-'
note the spiritual need is the foremost
one. Then comes the ministry ol
